AA 6 letter record locator
« on: December 15, 2010, 09:50:28 PM »
Hi all. Question:

Is there a way to find out someone's AA record locator by calling AA with the following info:

Name, DOB, travel dates and origin and destination cities, flight number.

Aditional info:
The person calling AA is NOT the same gender as the traveler.
This is a mileage ticket.

Thanks.

Usually flight number and last name work. If not hang up and call again.

oooo good question.

i think this belongs in the smoking section.

you can access and change anyones reservations. you call up: "umm i have a flight this and this day. this is the name. i dunno what time, my boss booked it. No! I dont want to miss my flight..."

then you get the record locator. works like a charm. really, i never used it maliciously. but its very interesting this hole in security.
wired once did a competition to find one of their writers who "hid" for a month. I remember thinking: why not just reroute his flight for him?

Can't you have someone else call for you? Besides, what do you need the record locator for anyway?

By asian airlines and elal, it seems very difficult to get them to release a locator.

Dan doesn't know yet that he really is flying my direction.

Its those little surprises that make flying interesting.

I always make calls for my wife, the reps never have the guts to say something, some women have masculine voices.
